The El Train is an unobtainable vehicle in Saints Row and Saints Row 2.

DescriptionEdit

The El Train is a heavy rail Rapid Transit system. It can only be driven on tracks and can only be controlled by the game AI. The El Train cannot be driven in any Saints Row game, unless modifications are used.

It can be targeted with the Annihilator RPG, the Tornado's weapons, or crashing a heavy vehicle into it. Each car can be damaged or destroyed and doing so results in it stopping completely or derailing.

Saints RowEdit

In Saints Row, The Protagonist can enter a train as a passenger at a Stilwater Transit station and travel to any other station in Stilwater. As with the Taxi Service, the journey cannot be watched, the screen blacks out for a few seconds and The Protagonist is warped to the destination.

Getting on top of an El Train to hitch a ride is also possible. First climbing on top of a tall vehicle, parked next to the track at the the Downtown station works best for this.

The El Train has opaque windows. Blowing the train up results in the windows and doors falling off, exposing the interior.

Saints Row 2Edit

Stilwater Transit is not available to use, but The Protagonist can glitch into the El Train using Flashbangs.

It is still possible to ride on top of an El Train, but the Vehicle Surfing mini-game can not be triggered. It is possible to modify the game to be able to drive the El Train.

El Trains have clear windows and feature improved interiors with more detail than in the previous game.

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

The El Train does not appear in Saints Row: The Third, although there are static train models on the train tracks downtown. There are two of them and they do not run at all.

These trains look like El Trains from previous games but are covered in graffiti. A good way to find these two trains is to either run on the train tracks downtown, or fly a helicopter over them.

When standing under the track, rail sounds are heard above, indicating moving El Trains were planned, but not included in the game.

TriviaEdit

El Train Cut - Default SR2 variant screenshot

The El Train from "Insult to Injury" cutscene of "Waste Not Want Not" mission.

  • The front section of the train has a door that says "Operator Door".
  • It is possible to tow the train with the Shaft.
  • In "Insult to Injury" cutscene of "Waste Not Want Not" mission exists a variant of the El Train, which is larger and different from the normal version.
  • The trains are based on Chicago's "L" Trains, however, as pointed out in "Insult to Injury" cutscene, the door chime is from New York City.
  • In a powerful vehicle traveling at high speed, it is possible to knock the train off the tracks.
  • There is a glitch where the trains stops entirely while going over a dip, causing the wheels to remain hovering over the track, rendering the trains unable to move.
  • There are several points where trees were put too close to the tracks and intersect through them. If viewed for long enough a train eventually comes down the line and derails upon meeting the tree.
  • In Saints Row 2 it is possible to push the train backwards without derailing, but a heavy vehicle is needed such as the Peterliner. However, eventually the train fully stops, but the process can be repeated before the El Train moves forward.
  • In Saints Row 2, the El Train going from north-west to Humbolt Park Station always crashes in the tree and stops instantly, being unable to move.
  • In Saints Row 2, only the front cab blows up. Other three only lose their doors after being destroyed.
